There was some walking almost immediately after the race started which is always frustrating but it comes with the territory. Its hard to fit over 350 people on single track trail in the woods when we all start at the same time. I had kind of wished at this point that I was up further at the start but looking back this probably saved me to finish the race feeling as strong as I did. Had I been up front I would have went out much faster and probably fried my legs by mile 4. My legs felt great during the entire event. It was very hot and I was surprised as to how much open trail there was on the course. I was wishing for more shade during a July trail run!
The hills were great. I am by no means an amazing hill runner but I do love a challenge and Quadzilla gave us just that. Im very happy I signed up and Im even more happy that my husband came with me! The event staff and volunteers were great and I freaking love the shirts we got for signing up. The race was really enjoyable and if you live in Southeastern PA I would recommend you sign up for it next year.
